Hey Chart, Thanks for thinking about
me!!! So sorry I haven't checked in for a while now! Yes, my #2 Son has been home on leave and we have been having a blast together!! Fishing hasn't been the best but we have been out a couple times and caught a few including one huge snook that was around 20~25lbs!!! We had to let it go cause they are still protected and you can't keep them from the Gulf yet after so many died from the freeze the past 2 winters!
This winter has been unbelievable tho, so warm! It's been great!
As for my pain, unfortunately it's been pretty bad! My feet which used to hurt only when I got out of bed now hurt constantly sometimes making it hard to walk. My Dr's still think it's from my lower back which has been getting worse but I'm still not sure about that?? The whole foot hurts and w/ a numb like sensation, they feel like they are being crushed. It's like nothing I ever felt before??? My neck is still about the same, just constant pain which gets worse w/ activity. My hands are a little better since my Doc gave me shots in the carpol tunnel a couple months ago but they are very weak! I'm always dropping things and have evan cast my fishing rods right out of my hands a couple times> GRRRRR!!!
Pete Jr. is leaving Monday for Jacksonville. We were up there last week and met all his new co-workers which were all really nice and where he will be working on base. We also got him a real nice apt. close to the base where he will be for the next 4 years> YEA!!!!!!!
My older son is still out to sea but on his way back to Seattle from the Middle East. It was his Aircraft Carrier that went thu the Straights of Hamas(?) when the Iranians told them not to which sent our gas prices skyrocketing again!! (It was all over the news a couple weeks ago!) We were pretty worried evan tho he told us there was just no way they would ever try anything against our Navy!!! He will be coming into Seattle or actually Bremmerton across Pug. Sound in early March and we are going out to surprise him and his new wife he married a week befor he left last Summer!!! There's no way we should be going as we really can't aford it but we miss him so much and hardly know his wife yet!!! We thought they should be spending their time alone when he comes in but she insists we come and wouldn't take no for an answer> Long story!!! My Wife is about to loose her job from a company takeover and we are pretty scared about how we will live on just my SS check & unenployment if she gets it. I'm trying to be strong and not get upset but it ain't easy!! She is a mess and can't believe it's happening after working there for so long! The American way> We're all just numbers> Very sad!!!
So enough about me!!! How have you been??? I've been blabbering about myself here. It was the dreaded 4am and I was in pain as usual and had to get up and I saw a e-mail from Mikey saying you were asking about me? Always can count on Old Mikey to keep everyone intouch!!!
So thanks again for thinking about whats going on in Peteworld??? I sure hope you are feeling better these days and you have been happy> Nothing beats being happy!!!
Much Love and Big Fatguy Hugs>
Your Buddy> Pete
